I havent had a child in elementary school in a very long time. Now I and raising a grandchild that just started kindergarten.
Is anyone else IN SHOCK over how many items (and WHAT items) they demand????
Not only that, but the kids dont get to KEEP any of it, its ALL comunity property when the school year starts!!
And NOW the teacher is asking for MONEY for a project in the classroom!!

Nope. But I went to Catholic school my entire life and we were always expected to provide all that stuff. It was normal to bring crayons, pencils, markers, notebooks, paper, scissors, paper towels, tissues, soap, etc. Although, we never did community supplies. I hated the fact that we bought nice scissors for my son and he never got them back at the end of kindergarten.

Thankfully, that's not the case in my daughter's school (kindergarten). Ridiculously expensive school supplies, but everything I bought belongs to her and she's going to use some of the stuff next year as well.

Due to schools having no money for supplies, we teachers have been forced to ask for more on the supply list. It's unfortunate, but the schools DO NOT give teachers a budget for what they need anymore. :( As one who taught 1st graders, trust me, some supplies being communal (glue-pencils-paper) PREVENTS me from sending notes home in November/December to Johnny's parents, saying he's already out of glue, or pencils, etc. I make sure the supplies are used sparingly, put away correctly, and treated properly. I NEVER have a student without a pencil. :)
